COVID-19

In response to the pandemic, Trinity's Employment team can provide a comprehensive range of pragmatic and cost effective services for the benefit of clients, as follows:

  • (Early) Neutral Evaluation (ENE/NE)
    Trinity offers a quick, cost effective and easy to use online dispute resolution service. Trinity Chambers can undertake either NE/ENE depending on the stage the case has reached. Trinity Chambers boasts a range of experienced practitioners, including part-time judges and a well-regarded former employment judge, who can provide clear (non-binding) guidance on case outcomes enabling parties to attempt to settle cases which will otherwise take a considerable time to reach a hearing.
  • Mediation
    An established form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), Trinity Chambers’ team of former and part time judges and qualified mediators are happy to provide this cost effective and swift mechanism for resolving employment disputes at any stage.
  • Preliminary Hearings – case management, substantive and costs hearings
    All of Trinity Chamber’s Employment Team members are available for all remote preliminary hearings in the Tribunal, by telephone or video link. Trinity is happy to assist Solicitors and Tribunals in ensuring video hearings run smoothly and effectively, both locally and nationally.
  • Employment Final Hearings (liability and remedy)
    Trinity's barristers have developed significant experience in conducting trials remotely during the pandemic.
  • Barristers Surgeries/Advisory Work
    In these times of remote working fee earners and team members may need additional support and assistance as they are inevitably more isolated from libraries, colleagues and other legal resources. Trinity is happy to offer a surgery service where your teams or team members can make an appointment to “pick the brains” of Counsel. 

Trinity Chambers’ Employment and Clerking team are more than happy to spend some time discussing the various options available, the process, technical requirements and likely fees. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with the clerking team who are operating a full service. The clerks can be contacted at civilclerks@trinitychambers.co.uk or by telephone on 0191 232 1927.
